Event description


We are excited to invite you to be a part of the BEING REAL Inspirational Community Forum, a first ever event for Perth as the city and the state undergoes many changes that will define who we are and our place in the world.

This is a special forum designed to help innovative citizens and community members to discover different ways of tackling 21st century challenges.

The Being Real Inspirational Forum is proudly brought to you by a consortium of innovators and changemaking organisations including the enkel collective, REmida, Edith Cowan University, MAPS Institute, and LD Research Studio; in partnership with Inspiring Australia an Australian Government Initiative, State Government of Western Australia, and Scitech.

This event is run as part of the worldwide Open Source Circular Economy (OSCE Days) festival, that sees cities from across the globe coming together to explore new ways of living, doing, thinking and being.

Experts with specialist skills in innovation, entrepreneurship, futurism, design thinking, social innovation, community development and systems thinking will be facilitating a number of interactive, learning, exploration and community building sessions based on the themes:

Reconnect - The Mechanism of Behaviour Change: I, We and Our community

The RECONNECT workshop explores the psychology of behaviour change and how desirable actions can be shaped through reconnecting with ourselves, the people around us, our communities and business network. This session will be a hands-on experience of learning how to take a step back in order to examine our current positions before exploring the practical steps required to realise change.

Rethink - 21st century thinking for wicked problem innovation

Past intelligence and old assumptions no longer work in a Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous world (the VUCA world). To develop new ways of seeing and to uncover hidden solutions, the RETHINK workshop will be an insightfully facilitated session focussing on a specific wicked problem.

You will learn about artful techniques of re-framing the world, unusual methods for embracing complexity, while developing an understanding of the multidisciplinary collaboration tools required to approach challenges from different perspectives so that new insights emerge about difficult issues and more innovative solutions are uncovered. Simply put, we will show you how to acquire 21st century thinking.

Realise - Non-Directed Creativity and 5th Dimensional Problem Solving: Developing Innovative Solutions to Complex Problems.

The REALISE session is an opportunity for participants to fully explore strategies for developing innovative solutions to complex problems that apply in a range of social and corporate settings. An engaging mix of theory and practice will be melded for maximum effect to delve into possibilities available within a given context.
